fantti (629) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Pitch black, with dark chocolate coloured foam. Smell: roasted, liquorice, chocolate, little whisky, very fruity and raisin. Taste is raisin-like, fruity, roasty, chocolate-like, liquorice-like and little twiggy. Palate is unbelievable full and stable. All in all, this is unbelievalble full in every meaning, one of the best I’ve ever drank.

Abrakarl (249) - SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2013
Magnificent rich, cherry leather aroma. Can imagine this is a beer that will be "too much". But it is a joy tasting half a bottle of 25 cl of this luxurious brew. Almost no head. Boozy - in a good way. Didn’t go too far with the bourbon ageing here.

Pours black with a big caramel coloured creamy head. Aroma of vanilla, viniousity, liquirish and chocolate. Mouthfeel is soft and nice with a flavour of chocolate, a hint of vanilla, viniousity and nicely balanced with hops that gives the beer a long nice aftertaste together with the bitter chocolate.

Rasmus40 (9840) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2011
Black with a thick very dark brown head. It looks oily coming out of the bottle. Aroma is sweet, bourbon, roasted malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted bitter finish with some alcohol. Smooth and oily. The bourbon is there, but it’s not overdone. Brilliant. 140511
